You have to mask tablenames and fieldnames with ", if you are using the
internal databases.

UPDATE "Adressensammlung"."Adressen" SET "Adressen"."Print_flag" = TRUE
WHERE "Adressen"."Xmas" = TRUE;

Could be you are using MySQL/MariaDB (I see there is a database-name in
the code). So you could also mask databasename, tablename and fieldname
with `.

UPDATE `Adressensammlung`.`Adressen` SET `Adressen`.`Print_flag` = TRUE
WHERE `Adressen`.`Xmas` = TRUE;

Everything, which is masked with ', will be detected as text, not as a
name of the database, table or field.

Regards

Robert
